I don’t know how things look out your window, but here on the East Coast there was a quick switch from hot to cold-and-rainy in the last week. While I am not afraid of the rain and certainly don’t mind running in it, if I can complete my workout without actually leaving the house in this weather, that is fine by me!
I created and have been doing this weight and cardio workout from the warmth (well, dryness, anyway) of my living room this week:
By moving straight from one exercise to the next without a break, you can make it a cardio workout as well as strength. I typically use two 10-lb dumbbells for the moves that require weights (and sometimes for the walking lunges, if I’m feeling ambitious :)).
Give it a try, and let me know what you think!
What have we been eating this week to power such a grueling workout? Well, I’m glad you asked! The last two nights we’ve had one of the most neutral-colored meals possible: tilapia + brown rice pasta + spaghetti squash.
We baked the tilapia with a mixture of butter*, garlic, lemon juice, and basil, and made extra to season the brown rice pasta. We roasted the squash with a little olive oil, salt, and pepper. Everything was delicious, despite falling in the oh-so-visually-appealing beige-yellow-tan category.

Tonight may be a stew night, despite the fact that it’s not Stewsday. 😉
Have a great Thursday, and if you’re experiencing the weather we are, stay dry!
